Homework Help: Redox half reaction

  1. Nov 11, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    redox cyclohexene and H2O2


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    C6H10 + H2O2 > C6H10O4 + H2O
    half reations
    (4 H2O + C6H10 > C6H10O4 + 8 H+ +8e-) * 2 oxidation
    (2e- + 2H+ + H2O2 > 2 H2O ) * 8 reduction

    8 H2O + 2 C6H10 + 16e- + 16H+ + 8H2O2 > 2 C6H10O4 + 16 H+ + 16 e- + 16 H2O

    C6H10 + 4 H2O2 > C6H10O4 + 4 H2O


    did i do it rit :S
